Crafting | Baby Gifts

I've been crafting up some baby gifts for my friends Cass and Sally, who are both expecting.  I made a set of 12 baby thank-you cards for my friend Sally.

I used 8.5x11 Bazzill white cardstock in orange peel texture for the card base.  I cut it in half horizontally, then I scored each card at 4.25" using my Martha Stewart Scoring Board

I wanted to have the front of the card be a scalloped edge, so I used my Fiskars scalloped border punch on each card.

Then I stamped the "thank you" sentiment on the bottom of the front of the card, using the "Just My Type Too" stamp set from Lawn Fawn and Jenni Bowlin dye ink in Brown Sugar.

Then I downloaded some baby onesie shapes from Silhouette, and used my Silhouette SD digital cutter to cut out blue and pink onesies.  (Sally's having twins, a boy and a girl.)

I glued one pink and one blue onesie onto the middle of each card, using glue dots.  Then I used a brown BIC marker to draw a thin clothesline across the front.

Easy and cute!

I packaged the twelve cards up with envelopes and tied it up with Buttercream twine from The Twinery.

I had some onesies left over, so I made similar "Congratulations" cards to go along with my gifts.

Then I made some gift tags using the onesies again.  I tied the gift and gift tags with some blue and pink twine for Sally's gift.

Cass is having a girl, so I used pink and brown for her tag.  The cute cat is a stamp from the "Tremendous Treats: Valentine" stamp set by Papertrey Ink.  The "Little Princess" is a stamp from Mini Sentiments set by Purple Onion Designs. I stamped everything onto an Avery shipping tag and wrote on it with pink BIC marker and colored in the heart and nose on the cat. 

The whole thing took me about three hours (12 thank you cards, plus gift wrapping and gift tags).  I like how everything turned out, as did the recipients!  :)
